Sremska Mitrovica is a Serbian city in the Vojvodina on the north bank of the Sava River, which lies on the settlement of the ancient Byzantine city of Sirmium. The former Sirmium during the Middle Ages in Hungarian was "city of Saint Demetrius on the Sava".

In the Middle Ages the city was fought a long time between Byzantium and Hungary. Methodius of Thessaloniki in the 9th century had his seat as Archbishop of Pannonia and Great Moravia in Sirmium / Sremska Mitrovica. 1526 the city was conquered by the Ottomans. During the Ottoman rule the town was called Seher Mitrovica and Dimitrofçe. Under the Ottomans, the city had a Muslim majority.

Our first tour through Sremska Mitrovica had led us to the office of Vlada (in the picture on the left), who, together with Jovane and some other committed citizens, had already been able to implement some changes in the cityscape to improve the still dreary image of Sremska Mitrivica.

Our route to the north should this time lead us passing Skopje, Nis and Belgrade along the main route E 75 or A1 / E 70 through the Balkans into the Serbian Vojvodina, next to previously little known Campsite Zasavica next to the city Sremska Mitrovica, once a Roman imperial palace with fortress which was called Sirmium.
